Fall Preview Special! Live (at the time it was recorded) from Utah! An even longer-than-usual ramble about moving, working, not working, working some more, getting shot at (while working), playing impressive new Atari homebrew games, looking forward to an expanding galaxy of Star Wars and Star Trek spinoffs on TV, recent developments in space exploration, and why neither Doctor Who nor anything is being “ruined by the SJWs”. Really. (2:05:35)
If you don’t want to hear about space, this is not the podcast for you. This month, I tell you what there was to like about Hidden Figures (spoiler: a lot of things), and reveal the perhaps slightly embarrassing movie tie-in that turned a young sci-fi nut into a lifelong lover of space exploration. Spend an hour spacing out with me. (53:17)
Not mentioned in this podcast because they happened after the recording date: Peter Capaldi leaving Doctor Who, the Star Trek: Axanar lawsuit settlement and the death of John Hurt. I simply ran out of time to record an add-on for the news section, so we’ll discuss these at a later date.
